At McKinley we have fifty-four in the program. We have two full time teachers to provide this support, Patty Wells and Lori Bates-Heithoff. There are many different languages represented, Spanish, Vietnamese, Nepalese, Arabic, Albanian, Hindi and Japanese just to name a few. We feel very fortunate to have the program here at McKinley. Not only do they learn from us, but we also have the opportunity to learn from them their customs, traditions and culture.
The countries represented this year include: Mexico, Columbia, Morrocco, Gabon, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Ukraine, Albania, Italy, Indonesia, Vietnam, China, Japan, India, & Nepal.
